Those suspensions changed the life of LaColton Bester, who went from unsigned receiver prospect to signing with OU in a matter of weeks. At 6-foot-3, 205 pounds, Bester brings excellent size to the Sooners receiving corps. And he has OU’s head coach excited about his ability.
“LaColton is a strong, big player,” Bob Stoops said. “He has size, he has strength. He’s just what we needed to be honest with you. We felt incredibly lucky to have a chance to be in position with him. I think he’s going to do really well.”
“We feel very fortunate to be in a position to sign him,” Stoops said. “It worked out really well. I think he has great potential. We’re excited about him.”
Finding a way to create additional depth at receiver became a high priority for Oklahoma after the Sooners suspended receivers Jaz Reynolds and Trey Franks on May 20.
